Reflections 4 - A Work in Progress

This is the second of the two water paintings we started with Neil Broadfoot (see post on 16 April 2013) last month.

Cobalt blue was used for the sky and water. While the blue was still wet the land and tree reflections were painted into the water. This makes it a lot easier to match the reflections with the trees and the land later which are more detailed and are able to be easier to control.

Once the paper had dried the land mass was painted to match the reflections, then the tree trunks were painted.

I will post this painting at a later date once more of it has been completed.
